A super-quiet location — that’s Willow Court, with just a few dozen townhouses set off the Cross Douglas Road, within a walk of Cork City centre.

Here, estate agents Lynch & Co have No 21 on the market guiding €195,000, and it’s a lovely mature, mid-terraced home with bedrooms tally reduced from three to two, to create a dressing room off the main bedroom. It has a 27’ by 14’ front to back living room, with small kitchen.

VERDICT: Touch of old class, and bedrooms can be re-divided if needed.
